Thumbnail History Domain Results Explained
Posted by Brandon Elliott on 10 November 2012 10:34 AM

This is a good example of domain search results that can be seen by a PRO user. Lets look at each of the 3 sections in detail.

Thumbnail history screenshot


The first thing to note is that clicking on the screenshot will take you to the URL that was requested. Also, hovering over the screenshot will popup the image at the full size it was requested.

Next, notice the text [u]below[/u] the screenshot. Here you will find information about what type of request was made.


  • Res: Default Size = Standard Size Request (sm, lg, xlg, etc.)
  • Res: 640x480(Full) = Custom Size (640x480) Full Length Request
  • Res: Default Size + Specific Page = Standard Size Inside Page Request
  • Res: Default Size + Browser:800x600 = Standard Size Custom Browser Resolution Request


The Timestamp section contains a lot more information than either of the other 2 sections.

On the first line is a link to the requested URL. Followed on the second line by the server response code (eg HTTP/1.1 200 OK) and 2 STW internal links.

The "View XML" link shows the XML response generated from the request.

The "Direct Link" goes to that one specific screenshot in Thumbnail History. This is good to provide when contacting us for support about an individual screenshot.

On the third line, the date and time of the capture is displayed.

And the last line contains four (4) separate pieces of information that can be useful.

First is the amount of time the request was in queue before being assigned to a generator.
Second is the amount of time it took to get captured after it was assigned to a generator.
Third is an indicator of whether or not a Flash Delay was requested.
Fourth is the file size (for default sizes, all 6 sizes are listed from largest to smallest).

Note: You can sort your results by Timestamp ascending or descending.


The first line in this section shows you if the thumbnail was originally requested by you or not.

The second line has a drop down menu from which you can refresh the displayed thumbnail.

Simply select "Refresh" and click the "Go" button.
Clicking "Go" with "Status" selected will update the page without having to resend the form.

The last line shows you where (domain, IP, or API) the request originated, if you were the one that requested it.
